Thinking of taking a conversation class? Read our article to find out what the benefits are and whether a conversation class is the right solution for you.

If you are considering taking a conversation class, it’s likely that you’re not entirely new to the language you want to learn. Chances are, you've already experienced the difficulties that come with transitioning from theory to practice

On the other hand, finding the opportunity to put what you've learned into practice is key if you want to become fluent and improve your language proficiency

That’s why a conversation class can make all the difference. Conversation classes allow you to practice speaking in real situations while improving your fluency, listening skills, and your ability to communicate naturally. 

Choosing the right conversation class for you is a crucial step to bridge the gap between theory and practice, transitioning from textbooks to real life.

In this article, we take a look at the reasons why enrolling in a conversation class can represent a turning point in your language-learning journey.

The benefits of conversation classes

The benefits of attending a conversation class are manifold and can make all the difference when learning a language. What you need to know, is that this type of course is usually dedicated to students from the pre-intermediate level upwards.

The first advantage of conversation classes is that they allow you to practice the spoken language in a natural and spontaneous way, learning typical expressions and ways of saying things. 

One such example is our PARLIAMO! Group Italian Conversation Course in Urbania, which is structured to address a variety of topics: from daily life to culture, history, and current affairs. As a result, you will be able to hone your language skills while gaining a deeper understanding of Italian culture.

In short, attending a conversation class will allow you to:

  1. Become more fluent when using the language; 
  2. Improve your confidence and security, overcoming any fears that might get in the way when you are not used to expressing yourself in a foreign language;
  3. Enhance your vocabulary by learning new expressions and words;
  4. Improve your listening skills, allowing you to get used to different accents and speaking styles.

Finally, if you decide to take a group conversation class in person, you will also get the opportunity to learn more about the country’s culture by sharing experiences, customs, and points of view with other students and teachers.


Which conversation class to choose

We’ve just taken a look at how enrolling in a group conversation classes abroad can really elevate your language-learning experience. 

However, there are plenty of other ways to improve your speaking skills.

For example, you might opt for an in-person, one-to-one conversation class. These kinds of classes, such as our PARLIAMO! One-to-One Conversation Course, have the advantage of allowing you to customise every aspect of your learning journey, from the course length to content timetable.

As such, this is a great option if you are looking for a tailored approach, perhaps with a focus on specific topics related to your studies or career. 

Another option worth considering is an online one-to-one course. This is an excellent solution if you want to practice Italian and avoid losing your language skills but aren’t able to make the trip abroad due to existing commitments.

One such example is our PARLIAMO! Online One-to-One Conversation Course. Our dedicated interactive platform will provide you will all of the tools you need to actively take part in live lessons with your teacher.
